Full House for Camp Corinthian
Summer at BCYC is in full swing with the weekly Burger Bash beginning this month, and Taco Tuesdays continuing the evening race series. Camp Corinthian Summer Program is close to capacity for the first time in seven years — over 90 sailors enrolled! We have a very robust program this year with a stellar coaching staff and lots of talent throughout the junior ranks. It will be exciting to see how we stack up in competition with other yacht clubs when the Balboa Bay Fleet summer racing series gets underway early this month.
One big change this year is the close collaboration with our neighbors at Balboa Yacht Club on double-handed programming. BCYC Head Coach Matt Peter and BYC Head Coach Mike Pinckney are leading a group of about 20 sailors in the C420 class, with half of the kids hailing from each club. The CFJ class is operating under the same format, and both teams have a very rigorous schedule ahead of them. Regattas include the weekly Balboa Bay Fleet series, the Junior Olympic Festival in San Diego, CFJ Nationals at Coronado Yacht Club, and the Buzzard’s Bay Regatta at New Bedford Yacht Club in Massachusetts. We also have some all-female teams competing in the Junior Women’s Doublehanded Championship for the Ida Lewis Trophy at Annapolis Yacht Club. We are thrilled to have our sailors stepping into the big arena by attending these national level events!
By the way, have you seen the new hose reel system we’ve installed in the boatyard? This upgrade is here to benefit all members using the boatyard, making the hoses easier to manage and hopefully keeping them in prime working condition!
